Discovery says it fully supports the decision by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Tokyo 2020 Organizing Committee to postpone this summer’s Olympic Games until 2021.

The decision was taken following a conference call between IOC president Thomas Bach and the Prime Minister of Japan, Abe Shinzo.

They concluded the Games should be rescheduled to 2021, no later than the summer of that year, to safeguard the health of the athletes and the international community.

“Our essential planning and deliverables are complete and will now shift into next year. We will continue to develop our products and offerings to best serve our customers and marketing partners in 2021,” Discovery said in statement released Tuesday.
